If you are looking for cheap accommodation in a good location of London, then easyHotel South Kensington could be for you. At 50 pounds a night for two people, it’s certainly cheap by London standards.

Easy2However, it is the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in! The room consists of a double bed (with or without a window), two hooks on the wall, two power points, a small TV screen (extra charge to use) and a tiny bathroom with shower and toilet.  There is no place in the room to store luggage as floor space is very tiny (ask reception about luggage storage). It certainly won’t suit everyone.

Don’t stay here if you like to hang out and relax in your room. It is a place to sleep and two can be a crowd!

We had a car and while parking is limited, we were fortunate to be staying over a weekend when street parking was free on both Saturday and Sunday. During the week street parking is only free overnight. Parking is available at Sainsbury’s nearby – but only for a limited time and not overnight.

Located at 14 Lexham Gardens, Kensington, easyHotel  Kensington is in a great location:
